Angel Eyes as DLR

I have a 2006 E90 325i with a factory xenon headlights. I know that 2006 did not come with an Angel Eyes that serves as your Daytime Running Light. Threads say that I need to buy a wire harness to convert my lights. But here's my question..... I have a friend who has the exact same car with the same year and her DRL is the angle eyes BUT with no alterations of whatsoever. How is this possible? Was this done by programming????

I thought angle eyes only came on Asian cars.

Your friend has a frm2 module. You have a frm1.

You can upgrade your frm to frm2 or buy the harness for DRLs. You will need to code the angel eyes as drl with frm2.

OP, assuming this is the case you can be 100% assured your friend's car did not arrive in the U.S. from the factory equipped like this.

Any oem parts supplier. You will need to find a local coder to retrofit it for you.

Head over to bmwcoding.com regional section and see if there is anyone local. I doubt the dealer will do this upgrade since it's not an official retrofit.

You can also try the coding section on this site for local coders.

No you need to upgrade to FRM2.

Search this forum or bmwcoding.com. It is documented there. FRM to FRM2 upgrade
